A Taste of Jesus is an in-depth look at the characteristics that are meant to make up the Christian's life: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. Bradley explains just how radical and counter-cultural these fruits are when they are grown in fullness. These are the characteristics of the upside-down, backwards Kingdom of Heaven and when we live like we're residents there, we begin to give people a real taste of Jesus, who is living inside of us via the Holy Spirit. This is by no means meant to be an easy audiobook to absorb, for the fruit of the spirit constantly butts heads with our flesh - but if you feel uncomfortable, maybe that's okay. Embrace it and see what God does.
In some ways, the original book was built to be an audiobook. Background sounds illuminate the opening story. Intermissions break up the chapters fluidly. You can actually hear the original music at the end of the audiobook rather than just listen to the lyrics. And on top of this, A Taste of Jesus is brought to you by an avid audiobook listener, and experienced audiobook narrator.

Couldn't take another chapter of quotes!! The entire book is a collection of quotes. I'm sorry but it just doesn't flow.

Challenges your Faith in Christ
An informative and eye opening book. It covers many challenging things about faith in Christ. For yourself to be growing the fruit of the spirit in general, but then covering some very specific and applicable things we face in the here and now. One of the big ones covered is loving your enemies and the issues we deal with in doing such. It also brings to light of the spiritual really does exist and we need to be doing something about it… even if it's just believing and praying with such a mind.
There are thoughts on evolution and science, seeing it fit with God rather than be totally against. There are some very different viewpoints than one might have grown up with so one might need to be careful coming into this and be sure to search out the Lord/The Bible yourself to confirm truths. This book covers peace of Christ and the need for us to be better at accepting such a thing. It also covers political thoughts and seeing the world through the eyes of Christ, which is … hard. I can certainly say this is giving me a challenge in going into God's word and being sure I know what God is calling out of me for my life and what that means for me interacting with others.
I personally enjoyed it - and continue to find I enjoy the way Jamin puts forth information.
Note: Interesting with the fact of this being an audiobook - there is music at the end of the book. Surprised me - and I enjoyed it - though I usually listen at 2x speed and had to slow it down to enjoy those songs.
